Morocco: Multiculturalism and Human Rights


The project Medina: the Alternative and Hidden Sides of Fez el Bali is prompted by a general question – what does the space inside the old medina quarters tell about the history, culture, and contemporary society of Morocco. The project aims to help uncover, but not to conclude, the relationship between the space and residents inside the old medina of Fez el Bali. Employing a combination of photography works, computer images by AutoCAD Architecture, and digital mapping samples by AutoCAD Map, the project is to offer a preview of a potential platform archiving both first-hand visual documents and creative artworks. It is to encourage the adaption of digitalized visual information in local effort of heritage preservation, and hence expected for helping further relevant studies and projects regarding the contemporary Moroccan society.
